{Real Wedding} Stephanie and Mark: A Moroccan Oasis Reception at Casa Feliz












Stephanie and Mark’s wedding reception at Casa Feliz was a gorgeous affair with rustic charm meeting Middle Eastern influence.  When we first met Stephanie to start working on save-the-dates, she said she wanted simple but elegant, with textures, and possibly either lace or a Moroccan pattern.  She wanted to use colors that reflected the venue, Casa Feliz, so we went with a medium teal color to mimic the awnings of the historic home, and considered other colors like old, washed-out brick and clay colors.  After seeing all the custom samples, Stephanie opted for a save-the-date with a Moroccan-style lattice pattern, using a traditional layout and a custom wedding date logo.

Moving to the invitations, Stephanie and Mark chose to keep the wedding date logo and Moroccan pattern, but muted the blue color to a very faded and more green color.  This made their letterpress invitation much more formal.  We incorporated wide, scalloped white lace in their invitation ensemble.  The letterpress on this invitation was stunning, and gave so much texture to their wedding logo.

For day-of papers, we mixed the colors and styling of both the save-the-date and the invitations.  For the ceremony programs, we kept the muted colors of their invitation and designed a folding program with a heavy textured cover and white interior pages, tied with white grosgrain ribbon.  For menus, we mimicked the save-the-dates almost exactly, and went with the more vibrant teal to reflect the gorgeous colors at the reception.  For signage and the seating chart, we did the same, mixing papers, textures, and colors to provide a cohesive look from start to finish.

Blush by Brandee Gaar effortlessly brought Stephanie and Mark’s vision of a Moroccan oasis together with Andi Mans Photography expertly capturing every beautiful moment. The happy couple and their loved ones dined underneath a clear tent from Kirby Rentals on gorgeous rustic-style tables and chairs provided by A Chair Affair with beautiful pink and white floral centerpieces from Lee James Floral Designs. One of our favorite design elements of the evening was the stunning and delicious 3-tiered wedding cake with lace detailing and pale pink floral accents created by Party Flavors Custom Cakes.

We were so thrilled to create personalized custom stationery menus and table numbers for you, Stephanie and Mark!  It was so much fun working with you!

{Inspiration} Ocoee Lakeshore Center: Sweet 16 Pop Art Photo Shoot

We recently had the opportunity to take part in a fun Sweet 16 photo shoot and open house at the new Ocoee Lakeshore Center. The colorful pop art theme made you feel as if you stepped right into a comic book. In Style Imagery captured every detail from this “pop-tastic” shoot!

Living sculptures were among the entertainment for the evening. The models’ makeup, by Live Art by Julie, was true to the Pop Art theme. The dot pattern, dramatic lines and bold lips were inspired by the work of the Pop Art Movement leader, Roy Lichtenstein. Two Sweets Bake Shop provided delicious treats from cupcakes to popcorn, and on the menu from Puff ‘N Stuff were mini donuts and milk and gourmet meatballs.

We had fun channeling our inner comic book artist when designing the invitations and paper goods for this shoot. Big bright letters inside of dramatic speech balloons, captions, and the ever popular sound effects (POP!) were all details included in the design of the paper goods. Our work was seen all over the event, from the birthday girl’s chair sign, to the signage for the dessert buffet, to custom round menus. We even designed the artwork for the custom vinyl cling on the DJ booth!

 We couldn’t help but reminisce when we stumbled upon some photographs from the Cypress Grove Networker event in August of 2013, and we’re so excited to share them with you! The event was designed and produced by Tamuel Cowart and her hardworking team of planners at RW Events. The networking event was styled with southern hospitality in mind; Big City Catering incorporated delicious comfort food that helped every guest get in the mood to mingle! Cypress Grove, Dogwood Blossom Stationery, Brandy & Baeu Photography, Inviation Design

We had the pleasure of designing invitations, escort cards, table menus, and sponsor signs with southern comfort in mind. We used burlap, plum jewel tones, light yellow chevron, and floral illustrations in our stationery for this event. The menus looked superb in this dining area, which was overflowing with sunflowers and greenery. Florists for this event included Windermere Flowers, Greenery Production, and Raining Roses. Brandy & Beau Photography captured beautiful images.
